Priced from $1,750 on your choice of strap (or $1,950 with the steel bracelet), the ChronOris Date offers a strong value in a Swiss made watch from an independent brand. While I would expect enthusiasts to highlight competition from brands like Doxa, Sinn, Rado, and others, the ChronOris stands out for its strong use of the 39 mm case size, excellent wearability, and a well executed application of the new vintage formula in a non-diving watch. For those who refuse to desk dive, or just want a casual but automotive-inspired watch to match their love of vintage cars, the Oris ChronOris is good, simple, vintage-inspired fun.
